its a really good poem...amazing insight....

i wonder about the evil wish tho....did it come from within or without?

also...its real romantic an thats great and touching....but i like to kinda look at it or identify with it in a diff way at the same time too....like the conflict within a human is unable to be balanced and co exist....

its deep and moving either way,,,,the first interpretation touches the heart first.....the second touches the brain first....

I never thought too much about tupacs poetry before...its interesting to think about...

today was the day Tupac got shot 15 years ago...RIP Tupac Shakur

"its deep and moving either way,,,,the first interpretation touches the heart first.....the second touches the brain first...." I completely agree. Truth be told just recently I started reading his poetry,but this one struck me immediately..  not sure i agree with u about where the evil wish came from...although Tupac is the epitome of dualism..yin yang,lion and a lamb...and that's why,sadly,he was so misunderstood..

Let me know if u get around to reading more..

People find it hard to rcognise the differnce between life & art. Its like when he played bishop in juice and some people said oh thats how he is in real life.Pac was'nt talking about himself in many of his songs or poems, but he was amazing at internalizing any role or character he chooses. He can narrate your story better than you possibly can so long as he has the facts. Ultimately, the man was excetionally talented and this is what the whole world including us have come to recognise.RIP Tupac.

thug7777angel,

cool...i think what i was probably getting at was a possible reference on the poets part to a curse or some kind of necessary twist of fate...When a person feels this sorta way...its as if blessing or curse, (depending on how u look at it)...is necessarily apart of ones identity...Maybe we all attract evil wishes to some degree...small or big....or most of us just don't know it...and as a result they are not amplified and consequently cease to exist.  If this is true, then the evil wish only necessarily exists due to the person's existence, their identity, their destiny.  That is probably what I was reaching for.

Being that Tupac was really spiritual person, it's possible he may have felt all of this while writing this poem.  Also, since Tupac also understood his own destiny so well, from such an early age, I was just exploring whether or not this thought of the Evil Wish references more than just being secluded to the confines of this poem about a doomed Relation between 2 people.

Also, I'm with you about Tupac's poetry.  I read it a long long time ago...but I have not analyzed it or thought about it as I've gotten older.  So I will let you know when I do.
